USC and UCLA off to make their (hundreds of) millions in the Big Ten. Thoughts on the latest expansion bombshell?
  • Let's take a few breaths before we call this a calamity. I'm not sure where CU will end up in all of this, but it may turn out that a revamped Pac-12/14/16 or Big 12/14/16 may be a better fit for CU (61%, 94 Votes)
  • Once again (as was the case with the move to the Pac-12), CU is in a down cycle with expansion on the horizon. CU will be left standing when the music stops ... and has only itself to blame (31%, 47 Votes)
  • I'm glad that the big boys are getting together. Hopefully, this will mean that the rest of college football (the other 100 or so teams not in the mega conferences) can get on with playing football (8%, 12 Votes)

Do you agree that perhaps the best way to save college football is through the appointment of strong commissioner?
  • I'd like to see it, but I can't see it happening. The top 24-36 schools should just go off and form their semi-pro league, and let the rest of the country get back to college football (57%, 93 Votes)
  • Yes. The NCAA is dead, and no rules are regulations are being enforced. Another governing body won't work - college football needs a strong leader who actually has authority to enforce rules (32%, 52 Votes)
  • No. That would just be another band-aid. The NCAA already has rules on NIL and inducement, but isn't enforcing them. Schools which are benefitting from the chaos won't be willing to give up power (11%, 18 Votes)

What CU news story from the first of the week did you like best?
  • That CU picked up two new commitments for the Class of 2023 - a speedy WR and a 16-year old OL whose 6'3", 303 ... and still growing (40%, 65 Votes)
  • That CU is on pace to keep its season ticket holder base largely in tact despite a poor 2021 season and dire predictions for 2022 (38%, 61 Votes)
  • That CU has restored its "Athletic Hall of Honor" (adding Jim Hansen and Dr. Eric McCarty), and has opened a new "Legacy Wing", honoring The Twins (12%, 19 Votes)
  • That former Buffs Charlie Davis, Jay Leeuwenberg and Greg Biekert are among the honorees for this year's CU Athletic Hall of Fame (10%, 17 Votes)

CU receives a commitment from 6'2", 185-pound three-star wide receiver Wesley Greaves from Texas. Thoughts?
  • I do like the fact that Greaves had some two dozen offers, including from service academies and the Ivy League. This appears to be a common thread for this coaching staff - smart players to develop (48%, 75 Votes)
  • Good size and speed. A high school star who is certainly familiar with Power-Five football (coming from College Station). I'm good with this commitment (40%, 62 Votes)
  • A third WR commit from the Class of '23? Doesn't CU have enough good but not great wide receivers to choose from? Shouldn't this scholarship be saved for a lineman - or a future transfer? (12%, 19 Votes)

Which of the following quotes from CU athletic director Rick George did you have to read twice?
  • “We have some that want to come to us and talk about creating a collective and we’ll be in process of looking at what that looks like for our student-athletes, but we intend to be competitive". When? (43%, 50 Votes)
  • "We’re going to take a little bit of a deep breath ... By the time we get to August and those student-athletes come back, we’ll make some changes". Why wait? No one else is (42%, 49 Votes)
  • “We’re not going to put an eight-figure deal out there for a student-athlete. That’s not our focus". How about a six-figure deal? How about five-figures? (15%, 18 Votes)
